Creggan Wheelers cyCLAP For the NHS
*** UPDATE ***
With weather warnings issued for Sunday, and in the interest of everyone's safety, we have decided to postpone our Day 7 (Sunday 28th June) until next weekend.
Full details on our Facebook page.
The closing date for signing up via Entry Central has been extended for anyone else who wishes to join before the cyCLAP finale.
All donations still very welcome on Just Giving:
Through these difficult times it is important that we continue to look after our physical and mental wellbeing.
With that in mind, Creggan Wheelers are running a cycling challenge during the month of June.
The challenge will begin on 1st June with 3 weeks of training.
The main event will then take place from Monday 22nd to Sunday 28th June.
The main event challenges us as a group to clock up a combined 1600 miles - equivalent to cycling a Lap of Ireland.
Your entry fee will be your donation to our fundraising effort, with all money raised going to our local NHS.
Participants, friends and family will also have the opportunity to make a donation on our JustGiving page.
Supporting our local health service workers was an easy choice, not least because of their efforts during the current pandemic, but particularly because of the experience of one of our own members.
Having contracted Covid-19, Gerard McLarnon began a hard fought battle against the virus, aided commendably by the wonderful staff at the Antrim Area, Belfast City and Mater Hospitals.
We were all delighted to get the news that Gerard had left intensive care after a very tough two months. His recovery now underway, the club really wanted to show our appreciation for the sterling work of the people in our NHS.
So what next?
- Get registered here via Entry Central
- Team leaders and further details of this challenge to be confirmed in due course.
Throughout the event it is important that all participants adhere to government guidance around social distancing. We recommend limiting activities to solo cycles or small groups of up to 6 people at all times.
The focus of this event is Community and what we can achieve as a collective. During the challenge, in the week of Monday 22nd to Sunday 28th June, we are aiming to cycle 1600 miles as ONE team.
So, whether you can cycle ten or fifty miles that week, we’d love you to be a part of this.
Remember there are no league tables and every mile counts in taking us over that finish line at 1600 miles.
Team leaders will collate the miles covered each day. We will then let you all know how far as a collective we’ve cycled, which town we’re in and maybe what we’ve been up to along the way. 😊
So if you haven’t already let us know you’re in, sign up now, get those wheels pumped and enjoy!!
Remember to post to the group some photos of you on your travels.
Stay safe and remember to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Time to dust off those saddles and let the challenge begin!
